Old Hull and Little Italy Gourmet Experience

I tried the Hull tour first, it was delicious and such a fun way to spend an evening with friends. I discovered many restaurants I had never tried that were so good I had to go back! All of this with a great guide sharing interesting pieces of history from the area. I loved it so much that a couple of months later I did the Little Italy (Preston street) tour for my birthday. Everyone loved it and the highlight of that one was definitely getting a taste of Atelier and talking with the chef. It's great for locals who want to try something new and tourists who want to discover the city and all the best eating spots. I highly recommend it!

Old Hull Gourmet Experience

Had an absolutely wonderful time on the Experience Food Tour. Even though I was already familiar with some of the restaurants presented, the guide's historical presentation, the meet-and-greet with the chefs and the tailored wine pairing brought a solid value-added to the experience. Look forward to touring other neighbourhoods!

Hintonburg Gourmet Experience

Definitely a 'must-do-again' evening! An excellent opportunity to discover the hidden gems of our city. The food at each stop was expertly prepared by chefs who definitely take pride in their dishes. Each dish offered was unique, fresh, and beyond delicious. The information regarding the restaurants, chefs, and local history was an interesting and a wonderful bonus. Thank you for a very memorable experience. Looking forward to trying a different part of our city and seeing what else Ottawa has to offer.

Centertown Premium Experience

The tour was hands down, the best time we had in Canada.  This was our first "food tour" and it exceeded all of our expectations.  As I mentioned before, it's so good that I am going to write a more detailed account of our time.  All four restaurants were amazing and the wine pairing was perfect.  We got to feel a little like Anthony Bourdain.  Mathieu Samson-Savage was the best host.  Very polite and informative.  He was more than willing to answer every question we had.  All in all, this was one of the best times we have had travelling.

I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful evening last night. The food and service were excellent. It made for a fun and unique birthday celebration for my Dad that we all enjoyed very much. Good luck with your company. I would recommend your tours to anyone looking for an interesting way to experience some of Ottawa’s great restaurants!
